Hi and Happy Monday. We’re already half way through January and in the planner world that means that Valentine’s Day planner set-ups are likely under way. I’m not exception. Today I have a fast and fun Valentine’s Day dashboard tutorial to share with you.
For this project you’ll need a laminator, window clings from the dollar store, laminating pouches and of course a planner. I’m using my In The Moment planner from my My Prima Planner.
First thing you’ll want to do is turn your laminator on and let it warm up.
While that’s heating, grab a laminating pouch and one of the inserts from your planner. Your going to use the insert just as a guide for proper sizing.
Place the insert underneath your laminating pouch then just open your pouch and start placing your window clings inside. Use the insert to help you with placement. Your end product is going to be roughly the same size as your insert.
Once you have everything placed where you want it, close up your pouch and smooth out any air pockets, if there are any.
Run your pouch through the laminator. I like to do the sealed end first. If you’d like, flip it over and run it through your laminator again. Doing so is a matter of personal preference, but I always run it through twice
Next, using your insert again, line up your laminated to judge the size and trim accordingly with your trimmer.
Now take that insert, place it on top of your trimmed dashboard and use the holes as a guide to also punch holes into your dashboard.
Slip it into your planner and there you go, a whimsical Valentine’s Day dashboard to add a little extra pop of fun to your planner.
The Planner Kit shown here is “Heart Day”, available from Le Pink Sprinkles.
